Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns experimental studies of hydrated perovskites and hydrated alkali thio-hydroxogermanates, two classes of solid state proton conductors which are promising to be used as electrolytes in future intermediate temperature (200-500°C) fuel cells.This is an attractive temperature range for many applications but for which today's available electrolytes do not show satisfactory performance.

Sammanfattning : Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that transform the chemical energy in hydrogen and oxygen into electrical energy at high efficiencies and produce only water vapour emissions. Materials with the perovskite or fluorite structure types are commonly employed as the ion conducting ceramic electrolyte membranes in intermediate and high temperature fuel cells. LÄS MER
4. Neutron scattering for sustainable energy materials: investigations of proton dynamics in acceptor doped barium zirconates
Sammanfattning : Proton conducting oxides are currently receiving considerable attention for their present or potential use as electrolytes in technological devices such as sensors and electrolysers and, in particular, solid oxide fuel cells, which are among the most promising apparatuses for energy conversion. One of the main challenges for these latter devices is to combine the advantages of a solid electrolyte with those of operational temperatures below 750 °C, which is currently hampered by insufficient conductivities in the targeted temperature range.

Sammanfattning : Acceptor doped Perovskite ceramics have been shown to exhibit high levels of protonic conduction in humid atmospheres. However significant grain boundary resistance and long sintering times required to achieve sufficient grain size growth has hindered their widespread application as electrolyzers, fuel cells and gas separation membranes.
